I haven’t opened my DeviantArt account in two months. College life has honestly sapped the life out of me. But I can’t lie that somewhat I’m happy with the things I’m doing right now. Since my course is architecture, I’m learning so much and enjoying these things.
But I’m wondering how the people I’ve met on DA so far are doing right now. For such a short period, it feels like such a long time has passed.
Last year I took a three month hiatus off DeviantArt so that I could focus on studying for entrance exams in various colleges I applied for. It paid off, since I did get into my dream college, and in the course I really want to take.
Fast forward to now, my first day starts next week. I'm kinda panicking.
The past two months, I've been bus getting my life in order and prepping for college. Because of the rainy weather in my country, I kept getting sick too. That's kinda why I haven't been posting much lately. And that's another thing that worries me too about college, I don't really know if I'll have as much time to draw as I used to.
I really do wonder why I'm writing this journal or to who I'm writing for.
A message to my future self? Maybe.
Honestly for the past weeks I've been kinda aimless at what I've been doing. Maybe this was the result of a year of academic related stress, but ever since summer vacation started the beginning of April I haven't had a true goal. And for me, that's what is most dangerous to someone who loves something they do.
Without a goal, you can't improve. You can't move forward.
So, I'll set up goals for myself for the month of May:
- Improve my anatomy
- Work on trying out other art mediums and techniques
- Write more journals
Yesterday, I finally graduated. I thought that I wouldn't get emotional during the event, but truthfully I did. Six years of memories flooded my head. The triumphs, the hardships, the friends I've made, the enemies I wish to reconcile with, the joy, the stress. It all came crashing to me as we sang our graduation songs.
Each one of us were called on stage, given the certificate you see above, and we shook hands with our teachers who helped mold us into the people we are. They had smiles i their faces, as they showed how proud they were at what we've accomplished.
Now you may be wondering why I made a journal about my graduati
It's been two weeks since my last upload, so I wanted to make a small update.
Basically, in less than a month I'm about to graduate high school :3 Though, the price to pay is the amount of school work that needs to be done. Thus, I've just been busy for the past two weeks with exams and thesis stuff.
I really miss being able to put my full effort into a drawing, but for now I gotta focus on doing my best for academics. Also, thank you guys for your continued support despite my inactivity, I'm honestly grateful for that :3
I'll be back full force with new drawings hopefully soon :3 Also, if you guys have any suggestions or request for a dra
